THE LORD OUR SHIELD
Sometimes in our lives, calamities and afflictions take aim at us and send volleys of missiles straight at us. Sometimes it is grievous bodily injuries and illnesses. Other times it is financial reversals or family disasters.
In such cases, these attacks strike so suddenly all we can do is crouch behind the shield of protection that God provides and wait for the assault to pass.
Our Lord is our shield and defender as described in Psalm 28 verse 7:
"The LORD is my strength and my shield;
My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped
Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him.
Our Lord is watchful over us and is mighty to save.
Praise and honor to His name.
